Burger was pretty good....nothing fancy but not bad either. Did not care for the fries. Onion rings were not bad either. I don't think it was anything special for me to want to go back, but it's your average food.

Several Bubba's sites on Kauai. All pretty much the same. Food is good but expensive for what you get. There are other places to get good food at better prices. This is primarily a spot for tourists. Overall rating would be 3.5.

I always make a few stops to Bubba's while on Kauai. I stay in Kapaa so it's a nice and easy walk. One of these times I'll try one if the other locations.

Get the "Kauai burger" which is a teriyaki burger with pineapple, grilled onions, etc. Really good. Slightly small though, get two if you are a big eater.

The girl behind the counter definitely wanted to be somewhere else. No smiles, no malaho, no good! I ordered the veggie burger and although I liked the flavor, I was very disappointed in the overall size of the portions for the price. Reminded me of a small hamburger size at McDonalds. The fries were good, but also not an amount... More

I am a Parrotthead. I have been to the original place Jimmy Buffett was inspired to write his infamous song, but I'm not sure he's ever been here. If he had, this would be the REAL Cheeseburger in Paradise location. I have had their Double Bubba (DO NOT MAKE ANY OPTIONS, IT'S THE BEST THE WAY IT IS) over twenty... More

Had I known I'd wait a total of an hour and 10 mins for a couple of hot dogs, I might well have gone elsewhere. But by the time you order you have no choice but to wait another 20 mins to get your stuff... that said, the hot dogs were good, the corn dogs were AMAZING and you're in... More

I really enjoy fine dining, but I have to fess up, we ate at Bubba's 3 times in the two weeks we were in Princeville. They were such a perfect lunch after snorkeling, kayaking,,,just about anything. The burgers are very thin, a double was perfect for me. The first time we ate there I ordered my burger (no cheese) with... More

After seeing so many Bubba Burger restaurants on Kauai we decided to give one a try. The burgers are large and tasty and worth a visit! Price is right so expect crowds at this outdoor venue!
